Review: TUESDAY’S CHILD by Dale Mayer

Samantha Blair is a young psychic with the power to astral project and to heal. Imagine experiencing the gruesome death of an unknown victim and waking up in a pool of your own blood in your own bed. Wow!

Unlike your ordinary psychic, Sam saw violence—not only saw, but experienced it. That sucks. But enough was enough. She had to stop it. “She was tired of waking up dead.” (6)

I was instantly allured by the concept, eager to see how Sam would get out of this. To do this, Sam must find the same killer that’s been mutilating the victims, thusly her. Of course, the cops wouldn’t believe her, not without proof. But Brandt wasn’t one of those cops.

Story was riveting at first, but then it slowed somewhat. Tracking down the killer just seemed to take forever. Hell, it took some time for Brandt to find Samantha. No wonder he needed help with this homicide case. Really, the best parts were of Sam falling prey to her “gift,” even when she was awake. Still, sometimes what she saw/experienced was puzzling, especially when you can't tell if it's a dream or a vision.  

Overall, it was a well-written mystery, although I still don’t see why it was called “Tuesday’s Child.”

My rating: 3.5 stars
